There is nothing like viewing beautiful Christmas trees to help get folks in the spirit of season and a recent weekend found Chris and I viewing all of the lovely decorated trees at the Porter Center at Brevard College.
I know several people who are involved with this yearly project and sadly this is the first year I have been able to attend. Different businesses in the community sponsor the trees and then other groups decorate them. The public is invited (sorry the event is over for the year but next year I will get in on it earlier) and everyone gets to vote on their favorite tree. It was difficult for me to choose but I managed to support one that was decorated by our own Connestee Falls Art League with a lot of wonderful artistic decorations. It actually came in second place so I am happy about that*91ol The great thing is that the proceeds from the entry and any trees that are sold as well as gift items go to benefit The Children’s Center of Transylvania County. This is a great organization locally that does a great deal to help children in our area — maybe a possible Comments for a Cause recipient in the future, come to think of it.
Check out the trees that I am choosing to highlight out of the many that were on display.
What a fun event this is and a great way to raise money for a local organization. If you have a tree up in your house let me know how you have it decorated. We aren’t doing a tree this year (Maksim…..enough said) so I love to hear how others are decorating theirs. All comments on any blog post this month mean a 50 cent donation to our Comments for a Cause – The Haven of Transylvania County.
